, rachel. >> we have went through a presidential election in which we pretty much did not talk about afghanistan. there's new interest in our military commanders there because of the details surrounding general petraeus and these e-mails from general allen. is this inevitable, and can this be a way to turn country's attention back to the war? >> well, it would seem if you turned this long-running war, which i think is really off the public radar screen. it wasn't only not discussed in the campaign, in the debates, it didn't register in the polls like we're not at war, except for the people actually fighting it. to turn it into the "real housewives of tampa" may be the way to sell it or get people interested. i suspect the moment this is resolved in way or another, people will go back to ignoring the war. >> is there any way -- i guess the parallel question other than public interest is political interest. you have seen in congress right now, including some of the republicans returning to congress in the house they still control, a real softening of attitudes on the issue of how long
speaker john boehner is holding a news conference about the house republican elections. kathy mcmorris rodgers has been elected to be house g.o.p. conference chairman and beat tom price who was endorsed by paul ryan who was the republican vice presidential nominee. and a couple of leadership positions will stay the same, including majority leader eric cantor and house whip kevin mccarthy. we are waiting to hear more about the elections. >> we are waiting to hear what happened from house speaker john boehner. a bit of background, one house republican sought to nominate newt gingrich for house speaker. we will have speaker boehner shortly. nancy pelosi announced that she plans to stay on as the leader of the house democrats and made the announcement at a press briefing and said, quote, i wouldn't think of walking away. we will watch that now while waiting for speaker boehner. >> i think that means most of them are here. good morning. more are coming. more are coming. yesterday, when we gathered here, i began my comments standing here with our new members of congress by saying a picture i
those numbers. as is often said, elections have consequences and the grand bargain if there is one must reflect that. the president has already begun to move beyond the beltway to enlist support meeting today with labor leaders from around the country who describe the talks as very, very positive. >> we're very, cre committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don't end up paying the tab for a party that we didn't get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. >> eliot: joining me now with more on the fiscal cliff negotiations is senator bernie sanders, independent from vermont. senator, many thanks for your time and congratulations on your genuine landslide victory of 71.3% in the great state of vermont. >> thank you. thank you. >> eliot: so how do we turn the exaltation of last week into results? how do we know say there must be a reformation of what had been offered to the republicans last year? >> well, eliot i tell you the wray to do it is very simple. listen to wha

questions about the 2016 presidential race. 2016, folks, the election just ended. take a break. we'll show you stephen's rant coming up later in the show. >>> first to the news right here at 30 rock in new york city and we begin with a looming showdown over the so-called fiscal cliff. the white house is showing its cards and sending a message ahead of the president's face-to-face meeting with republican congressional leaders. it'll take place on friday. president obama plans to open negotiations by calling for $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over the next decade. that amount is likely far more than republicans would be willing to accept and double the amount that speaker boehner had offered the president during their debt negotiations last year. today, the president is scheduled to meet with ceos from a dozen companies among them general electric, ford and ibm. they'll discuss ways to work together and try to find a balanced approach to reducing the deficit. during a closed door meeting yesterday with union leaders and liberal supporters, president obama reportedly vowed that he wo

"first look" is up next. >>> breaking news on "first look," new brombshells in the general petraeus scandal. now general john allen is connected to jill kelley, details ahead. plus a late-night search by the fbi of paula broadwell's home in charlotte. all of this as we face wide-swinging weather patterns that seem to defy anything we've seen before. breaking new s overnight in the scandal that brought down general petraeus. now the man who oversaw general petraeus in the afghanistan war is under investigation himself. general john allen is accused of "inappropriate communications" with jill kelley, the florida woman whose complaints of e-mail harassment started the initial investigation. a senior defense official traveling with panetta says 20,000 to 30,000 pages of epail and other documents from general allen's communications with kelley are under review. the official says general allen disputes engaging in any wrong doing in the matter. the fbi refe

the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> eliot: one year ago president obama bargained with republicans, offering a so-called grand bargain that cuts spending $10 for every $1 raised in revenue. the question now after the president won a near landslide victory is how to flip those numbers. as is often said, elections have consequences and the grand bargain if there is one must reflect that. the president has already begun to move beyond the beltway to enlist support meeting today with labor leaders from around the country who describe the talks as very, very positive. >> we're very, cre committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don't end up paying the tab for a party that we didn't get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. >> eliot: joining me now with more on the fiscal cliff negotiations is senator bernie sanders, independent from vermont. senator, many thanks for your time and congratula
time to get into it, comes one day before president obama holds his first press conference after his re-election. joining me now is jonathan allen. >> the other john allen. >> the other john allen. all we're missing now is for someone to wake up from a coma in a hospital and reveal they were the rightful commander of the troops. i mean the thing, this has spiraled and seemingly almost out of control. the reality, of course, is that there are 68,000 troops in afghanistan, we have military conflict in the middle east, what does this say and do to the leadership on the defense side? >> look, unless you believe that these are the only men that could carry out these jobs well, then the defense infrastructure and the national security infrastructure of the united states should be relatively unaffected by this. there should be people that can come into those jobs and do those jobs well. if you believe these are the only men that can do those jobs to protect our country in the case of david petraeus, having him resign from the cia would have been a terrible thing and the president should have stopped hi
after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the timing. about how this entire process has been handled. >> the president is supposed to meet with labor leaders today, obviously the allen and petraeus is taking up a lot of oxygen in washington, d.c., today. but this is an important meeting about how to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. lee saunders will be here afsme. so,
developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >> and this morning nbc news is confirming a connection between general allen and jill kelley, the florida woman who kicked o
of the affair before the election -- one aid of the -- knew of the affair before the election." host: all of this will be our topic later this morning. we will be talking with ronald kessler, an author who has written books about the fbi and the cia. back to our topic, avoiding the fiscal cliff, do you cut entitlement spending? and become a port richey, florida. -- andy, democratic caller, port richey, florida. excuse me, let me move on to nick. caller: every time they talk about these in congress, they will not cut their pay, not cut their staff, will not cut any federal employees, which is exactly what all that money is. immigration, those people are costing the american taxpayers' dollars. host: you say that that is exactly where it is going, the number that folks put out there and that experts are saying is that that is not where it is all at, that that would get you very far. but that the real drivers are these entitlement programs. host: i have a friend who works on c130's. they had an $800 garbage can and they were not allowed to ask if they could take a cut in military pay, becaus
, a lot has happened since then. attacks in benghazi, re-election, fiscal cliff we're getting very close to. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us now. i guess we should expect the president to address this sex scandal, too, right? >> reporter: no doubt he's going to be asked about that, carol. it's been more than eight months since the president has had really a full-length press conference. in june he had an abbreviated press conference at the g-20 in cabo san lucas that revolved mainly around foreign policy. and in august he had another brief press conference taking questions from four reporters. today we're expecting he will be asked about this scandal no doubt involving the generals and also the fiscal cliff. we expect that he will, as he has before, expressed support for tax increases on the wealthiest americans. the question may be how wealthy. the president has said $250,000 or more for a couple. but perhaps it will be more. we'll see if he puts meat on the bones there. and also benghazi. this will be the first press conference since that attack in egypt that killed a
me sad. but there's a bit of me that says, look, we just went through a presidential election and neither candidate said one word about $7 billion a month in afghanistan and 300 or more killed or wounded a month. sometimes i wonder about america's priorities and what we think is important. >> absolutely. you have some people who say this is a distraction from the fiscal cliff debate and a lot of other things. do you believe given what we know now and the answers that must be presented, are there legitimate questions regarding if there was e-mails or classified information? the volume alone that's alleged with general allen, are there legitimate questions that can placed without asking if our priorities are in line? you have to hold people accountable in the armed forces. that's our rule 100% of the time. but again, let me go back to the basics. petraeus is one of the the most talented people we have produced in the country's history. he's been at war for ten years. we needed him as a cia director. i'm sad for him and his family and the country. we have lost him in this manner.
, then this was a highly irregular process. going to jim clapper when the f.b.i. did on election day i don't quite understand that either. at this point, i feel strongly as dianne feinstein does that her committee has to right to understand what the process was, whether it complied with f.b.i. procedure. i think some pieces of this didn't. >> ifill: you mentioned... and to lenll the material. as i said before though, gwen, congress is typically not advised. i don't see why the intelligence committees would be advised. >> ifill: but you mentioned the election day notification, jane harman. are you worried at all that there may be the appearance of a political taint here? >> well, it was election day. i somehow think there may be the appearance of it. but i don't think that was anybody's intention. i think this was... i think congress should get to the bottom of it. if ere are investigations that involve the transfer of classified material, involving high-level officials or members of congress, absolutely. congress has to be briefed. and surely in a more timely way. congress shouldn't be playing cat
the election, small issues, we're going to begin to focus on big issues like the fiscal cliff but what happened in benghazi to take four americans' lives? that's important. a lot want to know about it and in the next coming days we'll be sitting on the edge of our seat waiting for the answer. >> people want to know about that but as we look at this, this cast of character that's merged from the petraeus situation including petraeus, general allen, jill kelley, paula broadwell, we are a war-weary nation but these men have overseen our troops, allen seeing 68,000 of our troops. there is a tipping point here where people are going to get angry to know what the back story is. >> i think so. i think ruth is also partly right when she says there's a sex scandal salaciousness that makes it appealing to the public and media but at the same time there are bigger issues. i think the fiscal cliff is an important issue that should come up at the press conference. this issue with benghazi, overly politicized by republicans during the campaign, now we can finally get real hard answers and talk about appointm

house cover up. >> what? >> that's the crazy part. he knew earlier that on election day, but now it's the president asphalt--david ryker. >> stephanie: another republican part of the cover up. this gets curiouser and curiouser. >> he was concerned that the fbi officials would sweep the matter under the rug. so it was related to toll top congressional officials and we know that eric cantor was involved. now as they have started to investigate in broadwell-kelley e-mail. they discovered that john allen had been exchanging e-mails with jill kelley. i'm assuming she has sent some back. >> that's hard to do. >> stephanie: wait so--i got lost in the middle-- >> this is like the the elwood love chart. >> stephanie: how you know that reference, who is this guy. >> john allen is the top command center afghanistan. and he was sending e-mails back and forth with jill kelley. he was also based in tampa at some point or is based in tampa. she's the voluntary social planner. >> voluntary. >> stephanie: what sort of social things is she planning. >> she's a voluntary liaison. her husband is a big-
mentioned the election day notification, jane harman. are you worried at all that there may be the appearance of a political taint her >> well, it was election day. i somehow think there may be the appearance of it. but i don't think that was anybody's intention. i think this was... i think congress should get to the bottom of it. if there are investigations that involve the transfer of classified material, involving high-level officials or members of congress, absolutely. congress has to be briefed. and surely in a more timely way. congress shouldn't be playing catch-up. that's obviously something congress hates but again to put this in perspective, dave petraeus has resigned. there are issues about whether he had to resign. i assume that was his personal decision. it was the recommendation of jim clapper that he do so. there will be an orderly transition at the c.i.a. i am on the c.i.a. external board. i'm also a personal friend of holy and dave petraeus. i have to say that. but i think before this happen happened, dave petraeus brought a different style to the c.i.a. but

a democratic elected and then we have to fight him to make sure he's progressive. by the way i wish you luck in that fight, i really do. he continues: >> i would bet my bottom dollar on it. i'm not positive about social security, but medicare and medicaid, i would be shocked if the president didn't take a chain saw to them. isn't that funny though, even if i'm wrong progressives are saying oh, my god we threw ourselves on a hand grade for the president. why? because they knew he wasn't actually progressive we did what we had to do to get him elected, now please, pretty please will you listen to us. i thought he was supposed to be progressive, i thought that's what the republicans were saying. >> we are preserved to preserving the tax breaks for the middle class and piking sure the wealthy pay their fair share. >> the president just got reelected, the republicans are reeling, we told you a mommy reasons he's got leverage. one other a recent poll from pew research center: if you go over the fiscal cliff, they are going to blame the other side anyway, which you should, so you have all the lever
, november 8th, two days after the election, general petraeus meets with president obama and offers his resignation. friday november 9th the president accepts his resignation and the word gets out. >> obviously the benghazi story has put a lot of pressure on senior intelligence officials. >> greta: fast forward to today, leon panetta announces the pentagon is investigating general john allen nominated to be the european command and commander of nato forces in europe. for now that nomination is on hold. general allen is accused of exchanging thousands of inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley. >> it is simply a fact that is the white house was not aware of a situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday. >> greta: time for congress to man up and get the facts. four americans have been murdered in libya and the obama administration is still dragging its feet two months later still not telling the story. former director david petraeus knows about benghazi, two weeks ago he was in lib qa ya to conduct his own investigation of september 11th attack. should he be forced to testify befo
